Florida Business Litigation Attorney Helps Organizations Handle Whistleblowers

Skilled business lawyer for federal False Claims Act and Dodd-Frank Act suits throughout Tampa

For more than 150 years, the U.S. government has offered employees incentives to report their employer’s fraudulent activity. Starting with the False Claims Act and continuing through Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank, the federal government has turned whistleblowing into a profitable industry. This is entirely laudable when the whistleblower has knowledge of genuine fraud, but cases often arise where disgruntled employees make specious assertions against their employers, reflecting a skewed view of complex transactions executed in good faith. If you are facing whistleblower allegations, Mitchell L. Feldman Esq. can provide a robust defense that minimizes the consequences to your company.

Qui tam lawsuits for False Claim Act violations

The False Claims Act allows persons with knowledge of fraud against the government to file as a plaintiff on behalf of the government and share in the government’s recovery of funds. These qui tam actions often involve fraud in defense contracts, or fraudulent billing of Medicare and Medicaid. If your company depends on government contracts for a substantial part of its business, such allegations can be ruinous. At Mitchell L. Feldman Esq., I work closely with your company to build a case that presents the facts of your transactions in the best possible light.

Common securities fraud allegations

Persons who have information about violations of the Securities and Exchange Act have substantial incentives to come forward under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010. Whistleblower allegations commonly cite:

  • Stock price manipulation
  • Fraudulent or unregistered sale of securities
  • Insider trading
  • False or misleading statements
  • Failure to file required reports with the SEC
  • Theft or misappropriation of funds or securities
  • Bribery of foreign officials

Securities law has many complexities, so the actions of your corporate officers may be open to various interpretations. I pore over voluminous evidence to distill the facts in a manner most favorable to your case. Drawing on considerable experience with the SEC, I present a robust defense that protects your interests.
